Dr. Sarah Stephens became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2020 when she began serving residents in the Greenville/Spartanburg area, where she continues doing the work she finds so gratifying.
“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is the fact that I get to help people feel better and achieve health naturally by just using my hands,” she says. “I love what I do.
“It’s rewarding to see the positive change in my patients with regular consistent chiropractic care.”
You can call her Dr. Sarah, and she’s a product of South Carolina. She married her high school sweetheart and has three daughters, including twins, along with a black goldendoodle named Stella. In addition to spending time with her family, she likes to paddle board, hike, and exercise.
Dr. Sarah attended Sweet Briar College in Virginia before earning her bachelor’s degree in nutrition at Excelsior College in New York. She then went to Sherman College of Chiropractic in Boiling Springs to get her doctorate; while there, she received the Garfunkel Award, the highest honor for student achievement.
“When I was 16, I was diagnosed with cervical cancer and was told I may never be able to have children and needed to have surgery,” she says. “Instead, I went to a chiropractor, got my body and immune system healthy, and my body healed. That’s when I knew I wanted to be able to help people naturally as best as I could. It may not cure everyone’s cancer, but chiropractic care does help the body fight disease naturally by stimulating the immune system. And as a bonus, I stopped having headaches.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
If there’s one thing you can count on finding in Dr. Sarah’s refrigerator, it’s grass-fed butter. “I cook a lot,” she says, “and nothing gives vegetables and meat better flavor than butter from grass-fed cows.”
If she could bring together any four persons from history for her ideal dinner party, Dr. Sarah would send invitations to entrepreneur Elon Musk, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, singer Reba McEntire, and author Ernest Hemingway: “The scientific and philosophical discussion would be amazing, and Reba is there to entertain us.”
The most fascinating thing that Dr. Sarah has experienced took place off the coast of Australia. “I got to do a dive on the Great Barrier Reef with my youngest daughter and my mother,” she says. “It may be one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen, and the way that the oceans are being polluted, the reef may be completely destroyed in my lifetime. It was amazing to see while it still had life and color.”
Dr. Morgan Andrews joined The Joint Chiropractic family of local healthcare providers when she arrived at the Spartanburg clinic location at the beginning of 2020. She earned her doctorate of chiropractic from Life University with a concentration in biology and is well-suited to meet the needs of local Spartanburg patients.
Dr. Morgan -- or Dr. Mo if you feel really chummy -- says the best thing about being in the chiropractic field “is being able to offer patients a natural and non-invasive way to improve the quality of their everyday life.
“The other thing I love,” she says, “is getting to work with a group of awesome people committed to the same journey and vision of making sick people well.”
She grew up in several states, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, and South Carolina. Not surprisingly, she enjoys exploring by hiking and doing anything in nature, traveling to new places, as well as working out, seeing movies, and spending quality time with friends and family.
She also loves the time she spends with her dog, cats, and two horses. “I’ll feed anything cute,” Dr. Morgan says.
Her ill health as a child eventually led her to the chiropractic field. “Being very sick as a kid and having found no hope or answers from conventional medical routes, I went on a journey of discovery about how amazing our bodies are and how they can innately heal if we give them the right stuff and then get out of the way,” Dr. Morgan says.
She worked previously in Irmo, but she absolutely loves the energy of the Spartanburg office. “I feel so connected with the staff and patients,” she says. “It’s great.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Ever wonder what Dr. Morgan always keeps stocked in her refrigerator? “Steak,” she says. “Because, why not?”
If she could bring together any four persons from history to enjoy steaks on the grill, she would like to sit down at the dinner table with Jesus Christ, President Abraham Lincoln, anti-apartheid activist and political leader Nelson Mandela, and chemist/physicist Marie Curie. “I think it would be amazing to sit and chat with them all,” Dr. Morgan says.
Her penchant for adventure once led her whitewater rafting down some Class IV and Class V rapids. “It was scary and exciting and challenging and made me feel alive,” she says. “I want to do it again!”
Dr. Justin Schutrumpf -- it’s OK to call him Dr. Justin -- joined The Joint Chiropractic family of healthcare providers in 2019 as a doctor in the Spartanburg location, but he has been a patient since 2007. A graduate of Metropolitan State University Denver with a degree in biology, he got his doctorate of chiropractic from Life University.
“The thing I like best about being in chiropractic is helping folks crush life,” he says. “I love helping people when they are told they have no other options.”
Dr. Justin was raised in Boulder, Colo., at the eastern foot of the Rocky Mountains. He worked in Atlanta before landing in Spartanburg.
He and his wife, who is the daughter of a chiropractor, have two daughters, along with a dog named Charlotte and a cat named Callie. In his spare time, Dr. Justin says he enjoys rucking, fitness, eating barbecue, grilling, cycling, doing DIY projects, “raising warrior princesses and taking my wife out on a hot date.”
He says he knew chiropractic was the right choice for him when he was jealous of a friend whose father was Dr. Justin’s first chiropractor. “It was when my best friend decided to go to school and follow his father’s footsteps and I was jealous,” he says. “But instead, we both chased our dreams.”
“I love working here,” Dr. Justin says. “I love being able to help people providing high quality chiropractic care while working for an honest company that takes great care of its employees.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Justin says the staples of his life are always stocked in his refrigerator: “Meats, hot sauce, eggs and cheese.”
If he could bring together any four people from history together for the dinner party of his dreams, Dr. Justin would include retired Navy SEAL Jocko Willink, cartoon scientist Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty, artist Jim Winters, and Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee.
The coolest thing Dr. Justin has done was participate in more than a dozen GORUCK endurance events -- of 6,12, 24 and 48 hours -- “learning teamwork with special forces veterans and building bonds with awesome people.”
Dr. Melanie Beach became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2021 when she began serving residents in the Greenville region, where she continues doing the work she finds so rewarding.
“I love the way the chiropractic field focuses on preventative medicine, allowing me to educate and help others to live a truly healthy lifestyle,” she says. “My second-favorite thing about getting to be a chiropractor is to see the change in someone’s whole being as they transform from someone inhabited by pain to someone with health and freedom to pursue what they enjoy.
“It is so gratifying to see patients come in with pain that they did not think they could tolerate and, through consistent care, be able to find relief and live their lives to the fullest.”
A product of the Southern California coast, the aptly named Dr. Beach worked previously in Santa Barbara, Calif., and Albuquerque, N.M.
She and her husband, Bennett, enjoy spending time in nature with their Carolina dog, Sadie, doing active things like biking, hiking, and watersports.
She attended Palmer College of Chiropractic, where she earned her doctorate as well as a bachelor’s degree in psychology.
“When I was 15, I experienced a particularly painful swim season,” Dr. Beach says. “As the season progressed and my pain worsened, more and more areas of my life were taking a toll due to the pain. My parents took me to a chiropractor who discovered I had scoliosis. After three months of regular care and exercises, I reduced the curve to the point of it no longer being considered scoliosis, but better yet, I felt like I had been given my life back. I knew I always wanted to help people when I grew up, but this experience with chiropractic care solidified my decision on how I would help people. I was going to be a chiropractor when I grew up and I’ve never looked back.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Beach has been backpacking on the Havasupai Indian Reservation in the Grand Canyon, one of the coolest experiences of her life.
If she could bring together any four people from history for her ideal dinner party, she would include the Dalai Lama, South African president Nelson Mandela, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and actress/playwright Danai Gurira. “These people are some of the greatest minds in championing for the people,” Dr. Beach says. “What they each stand for is what I try to embody each day.”
The book Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has been a big part of Dr. Beach’s life since childhood. “It taught me about bravery and courage, about standing up for others, and at the end of the day always be true to yourself,” she says. “I have loved this book so much for so long that I have a Deathly Hallows tattoo on my foot,”
Dr. Gregory N. Dixon became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2021 when he began serving residents in the Spartanburg area, where he continues doing the work he finds so gratifying.
“I enjoy working with, and helping, people who are in need of help,” he says.
Dr. Greg, as he is known to patients, is a product of Missouri, where his father was a chiropractor; holistic health was “a huge part” of his life while growing up. He worked previously in Ninety Six, S.C.
When he’s not with Sully, his German shepherd, he enjoys yoga and jogging.
He earned his doctorate of chiropractic from Cleveland University-Kansas City. It was no surprise that he became a chiropractor. “My father was a chiropractor and I learned at an early age the importance of chiropractic care,” he says. He remembers a particularly profound story of his experience: “A lady who was having difficulty conceiving came in for treatment and, after about three months, she came back and was expecting.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Greg says the one thing he always has stocked in his refrigerator is cold water: “It keeps you hydrated, and water’s what the body consists of.”
If he could bring together any four people to the table, Dr. Greg would sit down with Jesus, Buddha, Gandhi, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “They were all considered very principled people in their beliefs, and as chiropractors, we are very principled in our beliefs,” he says.
A book that provided Dr. Greg a powerful personal message was The Power and Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton. “It proved to me the power of the mind and how you can overcome anything,” he says.
If he could give advice to anyone, it would be the same that came from his parents: Always remain honest and humble. “It will take you a long way in life,” Dr. Greg says, “and you won’t go wrong.”
